Over twenty years ago, Beman pioneered the first
ever carbon arrow. Today, Beman continues
designing no-nonsense arrows to provide
bowhunters more success in the field.
From the simplicity and easy-tuning features
of ICS Hunters, to the micro-diameter,
maximum-penetrating MFX line—Beman
designs arrows for better bowhunting.
Now Beman has introduced new
ViBrake vibration dampening inserts
that continue this legacy of bowhunting
technologies. ViBrake inserts are barebones simple, yet devastatingly effective.
ViBrake stops arrow vibration and quickly
stabilizes the arrow in flight giving bowhunters
more accuracy and stealth. Top bowhunters choose
Beman—First In Carbon Arrows and still the best.

ICS Hunter® New ViBrake
Inserts Included
The most popular carbon arrow just got deadlier with the new ViBrake vibration dampening
insert. Accurate ViBrake inserts reduce vibration, quickly stabilize and quiet arrow flight, and
increase stealth in the quiver. ICS Camo Hunter with the added deception of Mossy Oak®, the
ICS Hunter Elite with the tightest tolerances, and the tried-and-true ICS Hunter, provide even
more accuracy and silence with new ViBrake. Put more venison in the freezer today with a
deadly combination—Beman ICS Hunter and ViBrake inserts..

“When a 2000-pound bull moose is closing the distance
with blood-shot eyes and a thick hide, you depend on your
equipment. The arrow closes the deal and delivers the
broadhead to bring the monster home. The penetration I get
with Beman is the reason I never question my USA-made
arrows…even though I sometimes question my sanity!”
Ralph Cianciarulo
Beman Archer’s Choice TV
ViBrake Insert Patent-pending
Beman knows serious bowhunters demand super-quiet
gear to increase their chances of success in the field. The
need for quieter equipment is the inspiration behind Beman’s
new ViBrake vibration dampening insert. ViBrake, developed
in conjunction with Sims Vibration Labs utilizing LimbSaver®
NAVCOM IV™, delivers cutting-edge technology that marks the
next great advancement in hunting arrows and vibration control.
ViBrake comes standard with Beman’s tried and true
ICS Hunter line of arrows, making the most popular carbon
arrow even more deadly. ViBrake inserts make the arrow
quieter in flight and quieter in the quiver by significantly
reducing vibration. Due to the decrease in vibration,
innovative ViBrake inserts give quicker arrow stabilization
in flight for enhanced accuracy. That means bowhunters
get a quieter overall bow and arrow combination that is
even more accurate. Shoot a ViBrake equipped ICS Hunter
today at your local Beman dealer, and see the difference
ViBrake vibration dampening inserts can make.

ViBrake inserts (also available as an accessory) fit most standard-diameter carbon arrows, and
are compatible with all previous ICS Hunter models. See your Beman dealer for compatibility
details.

all-new Beman Team Realtree MFX is the only choice for professionals. Micro-diameter,
thick-walled MFX delivers maximum penetration and automatic broadhead alignment.

“Bowhunting is my life, and the equipment I use is my lifeblood. Beman MFX offers true bowhunting performance—
deeper penetration and automatic broadhead alignment.
That means I spend less time tinkering with my set-up
and more time hunting. That’s what it’s all about.”

HIT Insert Patent-pending
Hidden Insert Technology (HIT®) is the power
behind MFX micro-diameter arrows. HIT inserts
give automatic broadhead alignment because
the broadhead shank aligns directly against the
inside diameter of the shaft. That means tighter
groups with your hunting setup and maximum
penetration. HIT delivers the best of all worlds
for true hunting arrow performance.

Penetration Rating is a simple measure of hunting arrow performance when
comparing shafts of equal spine (stiffness). The Penetration Rating is calculated by
taking the weight of the shaft in grains-per-inch (gpi) divided by the frontal area of
the shaft in square inches (gpi/in2). Penetration Rating is an effective measure of the
penetrating ability of a hunting shaft, taking into account the diameter and weight
relationship. Laboratory testing shows the higher the Penetration Rating, the deeper
the arrows penetrate into test materials.

“Bowhunting is tough business, especially for shooters with short
draw lengths and low poundage. Beman MFX arrows even the odds
with more kinetic energy and penetration at my draw weight. A full
pass-through on a gigantic Yukon moose is a testament to the power
of MFX micro-diameter arrows.”

Using Beman Arrow Selection Chart
1. Once you have determined your Correct Arrow Length and Calculated Peak Bow Weight, you are
ready to select your correct shaft size: Compound bows: In the “Bow Weight” column (left-hand side
of the chart), select the column with the type cam on your bow. Then locate your Calculated Peak
Bow Weight in that column.
Recurve bows: In the “Bow Weight” column (right-hand side of the chart), locate your Actual Peak
Bow Weight at your draw length.
2. Move across that row horizontally to the column indicating your Correct Arrow Length.
On the Beman Arrow Size-Selection Chart, note the letter in the box where your Calculated Peak Bow
Weight row and Correct Arrow Length column intersect. The “Shaft Size” box below the Chart with
the same letter contains your recommended shaft sizes. Select a shaft from the Chart that best meets
your shooting requirements. All Beman shafts use a spine-deflection number to determine size.

Arrow Breakage
An arrow shaft can become damaged from impacts with hard objects or other arrows,
or after being shot into a game animal. A damaged arrow could break upon release
and injure you or a bystander. You must carefully inspect each arrow shaft, nock and
other components before each shot to see that they have not been damaged. Before
shooting, place the arrow between your thumb and fingers, and using your other hand
to slowly rotate the shaft, run your fingertips along the entire arrow length, feeling and
looking closely for nicks, cracks, splits, dents, or other marks that could indicate the
shaft has been damaged.
1. Grasp the shaft just above the point and below the nock, then flex the arrow in
an arc (bending it away from you and others) with a deflection of one to two
inches (2.5 to 5 cm), and listen for cracking noises. Perform this test four to six
times, rotating the arrow slightly between each flex until you have gone around
the entire arrow. If you hear or feel cracking, the carbon has been damaged.
2. While still holding the point and fletching ends, twist the shaft in both directions.
If the arrow “relaxes” or twists easily, the carbon has been damaged.
If an arrow has been damaged, or if you believe it has been damaged, do not shoot it
again, as it could break on release, and sharp arrow pieces could hit and injure you or
someone nearby.
Bowhunting Precautions
Carbon arrows may be used for hunting if special precautions are taken. Carbon arrow
shafts used in bowhunting could break after being shot into a big game animal. This
arrow breakage may be caused by the angle in which the arrow impacts the animal,
or by the reaction of the animal itself such as rolling on the shaft or hitting against a
tree. The break may be inside the animal and may not be immediately obvious after
recovery of the animal.
When a carbon arrow breaks, it tends to shatter with the resulting creation of many
sharp, splinter-like fragments. These fragments can be harmful to humans if ingested;
therefore, when game is recovered, the hunter should always carefully determine
whether the arrow has broken inside the animal.
If the arrow has broken, follow the instructions below:
1. Use extreme caution when removing broken segments of the carbon arrow shaft.
2. Use care to avoid splinters of carbon fiber when field dressing game animals.
3. Carefully remove the flesh in the area of the wounds. It may contain carbon
fiber, particularly at the entry and exit points.
4. Thoroughly clean the surrounding area of the wound and inspect for the
presence of carbon fragments.
5. Carefully dispose of any meat that might contain carbon splinters. Do not leave
for scavengers to eat.
